Two of our 2012 Jim Fay Music Bursary recipients, Amefika Browne and Nichelle Bernard, perform a duet cover of Tracy Chapman`s Give Me One Reason. Their beautiful voices are accompanied by none other than Jimmy Bowskill, one of Canada’s premier blues/folk guitarists and youngest ever Juno nominee. They recorded this track at the Danforth Music Hall while rehearsing for their performance at our 2013 Shine! concert, held at the Lula Lounge. Enjoy!
